This booklet identifies technological gaps in numerous parts of solid-propellant combustion and encourages extra developments in solid-propellant propulsion structures in order that destiny platforms may be designed and constructed with greater potency, higher reproducibility, and greatest defense issues. because of the variety and breadth of the sphere, this quantity comprises contributions from many special researchers who converse from their respective parts of workmanship in solid-propellant combustion. all of the 15 chapters offers a survey of earlier paintings within the topic quarter, a close description of significant theoretical formula and experimental tools, appropriate experimental and theoretical effects, and technological gaps and destiny examine directions.

"The idea and dynamics of helicopter flight are advanced and for the uninitiated, tricky. yet during this publication, British helicopter pilot and technical writer John Watkinson units out to simplify the options, and clarify in lay-man's phrases how a helicopter operates. utilizing photos and over four hundred diagrams, all facets of rotary flight are coated together with the background of rotor-craft, helicopter dynamics, rotors, tails, strength crops and keep watch over.

The vapor pressures ranged 10" -10"1 atm in the temperature range 98-130°C, 27 and 10 -1Q- 5 atm at 188-213°C/ 8 and 5xlO- 7 to 5xlO- 3 atm at 175-275°C. Several authors have determined the heat of sublimation. 89 Table 3 Surface properties of crystal faces (from Ref. 36 THERMAL BEHAVIOR OF RDX AND HMX 127 kcal/mole. 55 kcal/mole value.
From these data, the authors propose a decomposition mechanism significantly different from those proposed by others involving the cleavage of covalent bonds. This new interpretation will be discussed later in the section dealing with decomposition of the solid.

Because of these limitations, a survey rather than a review is presented. In several sections, the data from the various investigators are simply presented even though conflict is apparent. It is hoped that investigators describing their work in the future will be more mindful of the need to communicate, not only their results, but the conditions of the experiment(s) and the agreement/disagreement with previous work described in the literature. The conclusion of this survey lists experimental details and protocol that are necessary considerations if a critical review/comparison is to be made.
